REVIEW: “Don’t…” by Jack L. Pyke



“Don’t… open me.”

Three simple words that tease Jack, taking him places from his dark past. For Jack, BDSM is a way to resist his worst impulses. Yet, the stranger calling himself The Unknown seeks to use that to seduce him.

As Jack slips further down into the abyss, two men hold the power to save him. Will it be Gray, the Master who knows Jack’s every secret? Or Jan, the first man to give Jack a reason to hope? With deadly ghosts coming out to play, Jack may lose everything, even his life.



It’s not a secret that this book is a bit of a mind fuck. I mean, it would have been nice for the author to buy my gray matter a drink before sliding in and thrusting viciously. But it is what it is and don’t… is a ride.

From so many friends telling me how this book will mess with me, I was on edge. I wanted to know who The Unknown was and why Jack was doing these things, things that began with a simple four letter command of “don’t…” I had three theories on it and I will say I wasn’t dead on with any but actually my three theories combined added up to it, sort of.

I really like Jack. He is the kind of character I like to read and when he meets Jan, well I fell for him hard. And then, then we get Jan’s POV which was interesting and sexy. I like Jan, a lot, all the parts of him and the simple fact that he asked Jack who locked him up that first day when they met? I knew there was going to be layers to Jan.

And then there is Gray. You know from the start he is important to Jack but it’s not until you are well into the story you know just how much.

There is SO MUCH I want to say, per usual of course I won’t because if you haven’t read this, you need to and let it all unfold page after page for the first time. I am in love with the story for so many reasons, I read it in about two days which is fast for me. I couldn’t put it down until I knew it all and now I see there are two more books? Of course I bought them already. I need to know what else can happen. Do I want to know? Can I handle knowing?

So, even though I kinda/sorta guessed about who The Unknown was, I had no idea where this story would turn but as a lover of the BDSM genre, I was thrilled and anxious to see it all played out.

He knew nothing about your world, Jack, yet despite everything that happened, he stepped in wholeheartedly, heart on his sleeve despite it being bruised and made a commitment to you. You just have to learn to stop back and see into his world for a while.

This new world of The Master Circle and Gray Raoul is exquisite and so well crafted. The author must have let out one of those evil villain laughs while she rubbed her hands together thinking of this plot. It’s a screwed up yet so organized world, this one where Jack lives in most of the time but Jan shows up and makes it messy. Messy is hard for someone who has OCD like Jack but I love it when he gets down and dirty. Yes, you can take that to mean the sex because it’s smoking hot. Unf and grunt worthy, the sex is. So hot.

He was more than a sight for sore eyes; he was a sight to force your dick into soreness from overuse just watching him.

But this story, I know it’s twisted in the beginning but once things are laid out between Jack and Jan and of course, Gray, it all got emotional and at times really sad for me. I guess I have a thing for Doms/Masters with a side or morality and I love the ones I get here. From the bad ass one to the gentlest fucking Dom ever, I adored them.


I loved Jack’s loyalty and passion.

Because you first look at me like you couldn’t decide when to rip my head off: before, during or after you’d fucked me senseless.

I fell for Jan’s vulnerability with Jack and with life.

Christ… Do you know how you haunt every inch of my fucking dreams looking like that?

I lusted after Gray, because he is Gray and commands it without words.

I’d do the bastard. Always.

This story though, just when you think you know what is going on and where it all will go, you don’t… you just don’t and I loved that. The anticipation and the, well foreplay to the finale was well done.  For me it was the only way to end it and that very last bit, *whistles* was hot.

Don’t… was a trip. A  full twisted tale that had me on the edge of my seat as I swooned and swore and simply fell in love with the story.
